Wood Stoves

Smoke created from wood burning can be a significant source of air pollution and can have serious health consequences for those with asthma, respiratory or heart conditions, or other illnesses. Children and the elderly are especially at risk.

DEQ has developed the statewide wood stove program to promote the use of cleaner burning wood stoves, and help homeowners burn more efficiently and with less pollution. Your community may have additional rules governing the use of wood stoves and fireplaces. Check with your city or county government to ask about local wood smoke ordinances.

Financial Assistance

Woodstoves emit pollutants that have negative impacts on human health. Some areas have local programs to help you fund changeouts to cleaner heating equipment. This can improve the air quality inside your home and in your neighborhood.
